How is this not uncomfortable/sweaty/icky?

Was in a spot of bother today and had to go commando for less than half an hour, and it is a hot day, I was wearing a dress, and it was just ...blegh.

I was not uncomfortable with the nakedness aspect of being sans undies, but it was just not something I would be rushing to do again in  a hurry.

lol. im the same with wearing g-strings under a dress. i can wear them with snug jeans, but that's it. i feel like my bum is wobbly and jiggly like mad, under a loose dress. yuck.

I don't understand the question.

I am not consistently either one or the other but I don't feel any hotter/sweatier not wearing underwear, I would think if anything it'd be the reverse?

Could you please explain the back story as to why you had to go commando today? wink.gif

It is just what you are used to- my grandmother feels awkward without a petticoat on under her long skirt.

The question is...am I alone in my sweaty undie-less discomfort.

I have done it under jeans in the past, and TB, found that sweaty and uncomfortable as well. Perhaps my body is more sweat prone. For me, being sweaty and not having a panty liner option was just uncomfortable

Nope you're not alone. I feel dryer wearing undies than I do not wearing them.

I find it uncomfortable too. Maybe the undies wick away some of the sweat so its not as noticeable.

To me its sometimes more comfortable than not, but I am not a big one for pantyliners anyway.

To me commando isn't always a brilliant idea especially since I'm sometimes as graceful as a trashbag hurled downstairs, but it's not hot/uncomfortable. In fact in a dress on a hot day it can be more pleasant than undies.

And now that I've overshared, I'm awayyyy!

Not that I do it often, but yes, I get what you mean. There is nothing to wick moisture away from your skin.

I've only done this at home and on the very few occasions that I am getting a spray tan - and even then, it's go to salon, get sprayed, come home. Do not pass go, do not collect $50.

I have no problems of people going commando in their own homes I am like whatever floats your boat do it. Life is too short to question it. If you liked it then all the power to you.

Underwear always camp here.

I just have it in my head that everyone would 'know' I had no knickers on! Eeekkk lol

Plus I do feel more comfortable and 'contained'  laughing2.gif

I used to sleep in the nude - until the day we moved into a new house that had had pets in it before we moved in. I took one night for me to realise we had a flea problem and I woke up covered in bites everywhere - and I mean everywhere. Not nice.

It has never crossed my mind to not wear undies anywhere. Ever.

Until now I had no idea this was rare...

What if you are hit by the proverbial bus/taxi/car and you are not wearing any underwear? Our mothers and grandmothers would swoon. 10 times worse than dirty undies.

Have been going commando for at least 15 years, would never go back to wearing undies.
Being about as graceless as a hippo doing aerobics I tend to wear shorts or pants rather than frocks, but on the rare occasion I frock it up it doesn't bother me none. Think Marilyn in The 7 Year Itch - all that breeze a blowing......

Just what you're used to I guess



Ewwwwwwhhhh. But where does the 'moistness' go? If not onto a pantiliner or your knickers? I know why I feel so festy after I use public transport now...all those bums..noooo, not going there...

My body has learned that when we have no underpants on its time to wee. So thats why I dont feel comfy commando.

This is what I want to know! Undies soak up all those little extras us ladies deal with, and I really don't have the energy to wash my outerwear every day courtesy of no undies.

Even sleeping in the nuddie is just strange to me; if the house catches on fire I want to be clothed when I have to run out into the middle of the street  ohmy.gif

I think I could be ok with a dress, but what about when you wear pants/shorts/jeans and your um... crotch is touching the crotch in the pants?

icky!

Ha ha. It was when I considered public transport that I completely withdrew my support for a nudist society.

Why on earth would I want to wash my jeans every day? Nope, definitely dont skip baths, have one every day (unlike some on here....).
